Update from the road – Saddle Sore

Well we have reached Esfahan one of the most beautiful cities in Iran, we are staying here for 2 nights to regain our sanity. Steve has been sorely tested by the terrible driving of the Iranians. We are so looking forward to a cold beer in Turkey and I can have my hair back. I have to wear a head scarf and a shawl in 35ÂșC not very comfortable. We are able to travel without the armed guards now so progress has been faster.
We are not able to access the website yet as most of the internet is blocked here. The photos will be loaded in Turkey in a few days so you can see what we see.
We have been treated very well by the Iranian people, they are very friendly.
Happy birthday to Eleanor for 11 May, to my Mom 70 today and to Niel 4 years on 15th.
Will be in touch as we can

    Hi Steve and Dawn, good to read your progress and good to hear that you are both(and Tara!) having a well earned rest. Take advantage of the rest periods, they too are essential to your progress. Thank you for remembering Eleanor’s birthday – 23!! Blimmey, how old does that make me?!! Uncle John has been in hospital for a few days with shingles in his eyes (very painful) but he is out now and on the road to recovery. Our summer has disappeared – very chilly right now. I’ve been busy doing my final assignments, dissertation and viva for the last few months and throughout May. Final exam on 23rd May and that’s it – 3 years of study, and that drive down to Cardiff, well and truly over……… providing I’ve no resits!! Hurray…I won’t know what to do with myself! Sounds like you are making good progress – keep it up. Be careful and be safe. Love Nancy xx
